NBA sideline reporter Allie Clifton had an unfortunate slip of the tongue during the Cavaliers game on Friday night.

The Cleveland Cavaliers snapped a 3-game losing skid with a 124-116 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night. And after a crucial bucket by LeBron in the fourth quarter, the Cavaliers broadcaster threw it to sideline reporter Allie Clifton, to ask her what she picked up in the team huddle before the play. She responded with "just masturbation" before quickly correcting herself to say "observation."

Here's video of the unfortunate slip of the tongue:


It's kind of funny, but I feel bad for Clifton. The internet is undefeated when it comes to this kind of stuff, so I'd expect it to be the new meme for a couple days. Fortunately for her, it's a guarantee something more ridiculous will come along, and her slip up will soon all but be forgotten.
